There are some products that take me forever to finally try though they have been on my radar for years. But new launches often can distract me (ooooh something shiny *loses attention*). Thankfully I force myself to explore long-standing products regularly so I don't overlook any gems. These Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfectors manage to capture so many great lip product qualities in one formula. Hydrating and moisturizing like a balm, but with the pigmented shiny finish of a gloss.
And then there is the color range. HELLO NEUTRALS! These are all super wearable, give just a hint of color to the lips yet can be worn alone or layered over multiple different lip products. To be honest, it just comes down to what color hits your fancy because as you can see from the below swatches, most of them look very similar on the lips.
My personal favorites are 05 and 06 because they have a bit more depth, while 01, 02 and 04 have a milky nude quality to them that looks best layered over a deeper shade.Yet still I added all 5 colors to my makeup bag because I adore all of them and find they will work interchangeably with most of my everyday looks.
Because the lip swatches all looked so similar, I felt that arm swatches would give a more accurate representation of the differences between each shade. The applicator is a cushy sponge that makes application foolproof. While there is a gorgeous shine with these lip perfectors, they are not tacky in the least. I would highly recommend giving these a try - your lips will thank me!
